Today on the Holistic Dentistry Show, Dr. Sanda looks into a fascinating aspect of our health, the oral microbiome. It’s bacteria time!


Dr. Sanda takes us on a journey through the exciting recent development of oral probiotic research. The connection between bacteria and the mouth seems so obvious yet it was overlooked for so long! The health of the oral microbiome is directly related to so many other parts of the body. 


Probiotics work to rebalance the naturally occurring microbes in our bodies and mouths that antibiotics, diet, hygiene, and stress can disrupt. They have the power to influence the rate of cavities, the rate of gum disease, even bone density, as well as, of course, fresh breath, sinus health, decreasing the rate of asthma, and much more.


Dr. Sanda reviews several probiotic strains that are particularly connected to oral health, such as Lactobacillus salivarius, which greatly improves bad breath. Consuming chewable probiotics daily is one of Dr. Sanda’s three top recommendations for optimizing your oral health, so be sure to tune into this episode!
